Man arrested after his girlfriend is found dead in Sunrise townhome

Young son was there during woman's killing, family says

SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise police say a woman was found stabbed to death Wednesday morning inside a townhouse where she lived with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend, Kacey Wilson, 28, was arrested overnight and faces a charge of premeditated murder.

Authorities confirmed that the victim was Belkis Rosales. Family members tell Local 10 News she was killed while her young son was home, and that she tried to call for help before she died.

Officers said they were called at 8:20 a.m. about the incident at the Sunblest Townhomes community in the 4700 block of Northwest 89th Avenue. Investigators confirmed that they did receive a 911 call from the home.

Sky 10 was above the scene later in the morning as police had the area blocked off with crime scene tape. Detectives have spent the day investigating, filtering in and out and collecting evidence.

“I didn’t know if I was waking up in a dream or in a fog because you don’t see that in this community,” a neighbor said, adding that she would usually see Rosales walking around the complex with her son in a stroller.

A cousin of Rosales who was too distraught to talk on camera said police told her that Rosales tried to call for help before she was killed.

The cousin said the suspect is the child’s father.

A GoFundMe page has been created to help with Rosales’ funeral costs and to help care for her 3-year-old son.
